    Anyone have Thrust Vectors on their BRP jet drives? I'm in a 2012 180 Challenger and i'm getting a huge amount of mist/spray from them at cruising speeds (25mph or so). I love the low speed control they add, but I've taken them off because they just soak anyone in the back seat, and the captains chairs are soaked from the back as well. Didn't get a great set of pics/video, but you can kind of see how wet things were getting after a 10min cruise. It's also pretty obvious that they're causing turbulence in the jet output, it's not nice and tight and smooth like w/o the fins. This is on a relatively calm lake, no spray or water in the passenger area from the conditions. I can't imagine I have anything mounted wrong, it was nice and solid, nothing moving or what have you. I'm pretty sure they just aren't flipping up enough at cruising speed.
